        "Die Fromme Magd," An Original Watercolor Painting for Sequel to Kling Klang Gloria

      225 x 390 mm, c. 1910. Superb watercolor illustration for a projected book of German Songs by one of the greatest Austrian illustration artists and pioneers in Jungendstil and decorative illustration of the Vienna Secession, Heinrich Lefler (1863-1919). The painting depicts an elderly woman in mourning in a church pew with two women exiting, and one is looking back to see her. Brightly painted in many colors, including bright blue stairs and floral strapwork border designs in two columns. Matted on a larger sheet, with Windsor & Newton blindstamp at lower left. Signed and titled lower right by Lefler. There are crosshatch marks for proposed reproduction, and the verses depict songs suggesting this was most probably a proposed follow-up for the famed Kling Klang Gloria which included illustrations by Lefler's brother-in-law Joseph Urban. Fine condition.

The recipient was Haggard's friend, the Nobel laureate Sir Ronald Ross (1857–1932). Awarded the Nobel for medicine (the first Briton to be awarded one) in recognition of his groundbreaking work abroad on the prevention and containment of malaria, the Indian-born Ross spent the latter part of his career in Britain. His concerns were not merely epidemiological and Ross saw clearly that social conditions, poor housing, poverty and disease were inextricably linked, a sentiment echoed in the pages of the present book, this copy of which was presented from Haggard's home at Ditchingham in Norfolk.

      Privately Published., India, Calcutta or Simla 1910 - No printing details are given but evidence from the journal itself suggests that it was printed in India, probably at the Viceroy's Press in either Simla or Calcutta. This work contains a separately paginated detailed index to each of the 5 volumes of Lady Minto's Journal - in itself an extremely scarce work. Pagination 1905 & 1906 xxvi; 1907 xxix; 1908 xxxvi; 1909 xxv; 1910 xxiii. Although unfortunately separated from a set of the diaries, which were written for family members and close friends, this volume contains a cery detailed insight into the Minots' life in india after Lord Minto took over from Lord Curzon. For example in 1907 there are approaching a hundred entries under "Viceroy" including "Prince Ram Mookerjee, Letter from - proposing marriage with ----'s daughter" and "Raja of Nagha, INterview between the ----- and ----, His Highness' views on the state of the Punjab". This copy is bound in contemporary maroon full morocco gilt, the spine ruled in compartments with the Minto monogram beneath an earl's coronet in the bottom compartment, boards somewhat stained but the spine particularly bright and clean, boards springing a little, contents very clean and fresh. We have seen odd volumes in various colours and one complete set in blue which we sold to the British Library several years ago. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Folded for mailing, a few marginal spots or finger smudges, otherwise very good. To Arthur Goddard, Jr., of THE LADY'S PICTORIAL: "May I suggest that you should give the writer of the enclosed cutting a friendly blowing-up. It happens that the passage I have underlined is not only not true, but precisely the opposite of the truth. My contribution to the subject, which is accessible in print to anyone who takes the trouble to verify statements before making them public, is a demonstration of the utter impossibility of the State Stud Farm proposal, and the necessity of trusting solely to Nature in marriage ...." He further cautions, "from one journalist to another - a writer so incautious and inconsiderate of his journal and his editor may make his (or her) next mistake about one of the people who live by taking actions against newspapers. You are in no danger in my case ...." He concludes by suggesting that the situation might prove an opportunity to "bring an inexperienced contributor up to the mark ... I offer you the opportunity for what it is worth. Yours faithfully G. Bernard Shaw." Shaw has captioned the letter at the top: "Private."

Vignette title pages, a map of the Lake District, and 75 PHOTOGRAVURE PLATES (with letterpress tissue guards), including one hand-colored plate at the beginning that duplicates a black and white plate elsewhere in the volume. Title page in red and black. Each volume with full-page tipped-in bookplate of Fannie May Howard. IN REMARKABLY FINE CONDITION, essentially without any wear, virtually pristine internally, and obviously used so little that the volumes open unwillingly. This is a really beautiful and almost untouched set of the works of William Wordsworth (1770-1850), who changed English poetry forever. When he (and Samuel Taylor Coleridge) published "Lyrical Ballads" in 1798-1800, he undertook the revolutionary modification of the entrenched traditional artificial verse styles in order to capture forceful sincerity and elemental human emotions. His radical purpose was nothing short of the reformation of poetry by deposing an artificial literary tradition and substituting a new poetics, more in keeping with normal contemporary speech patterns. Folk ballads, as "natural" poetry, formed his models for pieces that reveal a sense of lasting joy in nature and in experiences common to all humans. And there was considerably more to his poetic output afterwards, as he lived and wrote for another half century beyond the appearance of this landmark publication. Among other things, Wordsworth established himself as the first great English writer since Milton to produce a substantial number of notable poems in the sonnet form. Our edition of his complete poetry includes an index to titles and to first lines as well as an essay entitled "William Wordsworth" by Hamilton Wright Mabie. The publisher's note at the front says that the illustrations here are "intended to reproduce the atmosphere of Wordsworth's poetry through the medium of a remarkable series of photographs taken by Walmsley Brothers of Ambleside, England. These artists have lived all their lives in the Wordsworth country, and are enthusiastic admirers of the great poet, and it is hoped that their photographs, the product of a genuine love of Wordsworth, a wide and intimate knowledge of the Wordsworth country, and a keen artistic sense, will add materially to the reader's pleasure [as well as] afford a fitting accompaniment to the text.".

        Rewards and Fairies

      London: Macmillan and Co., Ltd.,, 1910. Octavo. Original burgundy cloth, titles gilt to spine, front board with raised circular Ganesha device gilt, top edge gilt. With the rare dust jacket. Four full page mono plates by Frank Craig. Bookseller's ticket. Fore-edge slightly spotted, partial tanning to endpapers, rear hinge started but holding fine; a very good copy in an exceptional jacket, mildly spine-tanned with the red lettering unfaded and bright, a few minor marks and small chips to corners. First edition, first impression. The very rare jacket (this one with the correct publisher's advertisements as called for in David Alan Richards's Bibliography) is a decidedly uncommon survivor in any condition, and to find the wrapper in such good condition, bright and unfaded, is rarer still. The book is notable for containing the Poem "If", Kipling's most enduring work of verse, voted the UK's favourite poem in a BBC poll of 2005. Originally written in 1895, "If" was inspired by the actions of Dr. Leander Starr Jameson, a British Officer whose forces were massacred by the Boers in 1895, but who was portrayed as a victorious hero by the British press (it must be admitted that knowing this throws a somewhat darker aspect on the lines, "If you can keep your head when all about you / are losing theirs and blaming it on you"...). The poem is a powerful masterclass in maintaining the British stiff upper lip.

        Sunset, Darling Harbor

      Sydney,: c., 1910.. Original watercolour on artist's watercolour board, 240 mm. x 530 mm.; in excellent condition, signed 'J.H. Young', dated '24.4.10' on the verso, framed. A fine watercolour of Darling Harbour, by well-regarded turn-of-the-century Sydney artist John Henry Young.This atmospheric watercolour, imbued with the pink light of early evening, shows a most attractive view of the burgeoning metropolis of Sydney seen across the waters of Darling Harbour. The domes of the newly-completed Queen Victoria Building (finished in 1898), the Town Hall and the spire of St. Andrew's Cathedral are visible on the skyline, as are a number of smoke stacks, which give a clear sense of the industrialisation of inner Sydney at the time. Pyrmont Bridge is to the right of the scene with passengers traversing it in two horse-drawn omnibuses. The watercolour provides an interesting documentary record of shipping traffic in this busy part of the harbour around the turn of the century: a tall-masted sailing ship is moored upstream of the bridge, and two small steamers and a larger twin masted paddle-steamer are moored on the far side of the harbour, downstream of the bridge. In the foreground is a small commercial steam-powered craft, with a sailor standing at the stern. Two large timber pylons are seen at the centre of the picture.John Henry Young exhibited at the Art Society of New South Wales (of which he was a committee member) from 1895 to 1910, and is known to have been still active in 1935. He is best known for his watercolours of maritime subjects both in and around Sydney Harbour, however he also painted overseas including the Mediterranean, France and Egypt.This work is signed 'J.H. Young' in the lower left hand corner. What appears to be the date '24.4.10', and the number 4, are written in pencil on the back of the watercolour board. It is reasonable to assume that this was the date of the painting or exhibition, in which it was shown, along with the number in the catalogue.This work is from the collection of the artist's grandson, at Sherbourne, in the United Kingdom.Provenance: From the collection of the artist's grandson - Sherbourne, UK. Shows signs of first mounting on back as being done in UK, with directions for 'Redwood Frame as last', dated 21.4.10, marked no. 4.
